Not an elegant approach but, here is what we did here at work:

Built a Win2k box ( sorry :o(  )with all the Palm user accounts in it.
We made sure that all Palm equipment used the same charge/sync base.
Created a "sync area" where one single base was placed at and users would 
place their Palm.
We create rdesktop sessions from the thin clients to the win2k box that deploy 
the palm sync software automatically after the users had logged on.

....and they al sync happilly ever after :o)
